A speed hump installation project will result in the closure of a portion of 24th Avenue on Wednesday, October 23rd

It is important that cars not be parked on the street on 24th Avenue between Summitview and Lincoln while the project is ongoing.  Cars parked on that section of 24th Avenue during the project hours may be towed at the owner’s expense.
